It Took Seven Years to Make Life Cycles, The Most Ambitious of All Mountain Bike Films

Life Cycles is a mountain bike film that took seven years to make. Co-created by Derek Frankowski and Ryan Gibb, one of the primary focuses of the film was to maintain a seasonal storyline. That shot at 1:55 where the forest goes from winter to spring to summer to fall? That’s not computer generated. It’s the same rider on the same bike in the same gear with the same natural lighting in the same spot.

If you’re as fascinated by this as I am, Wired has an excellent write-up of the film and everything that went into it.
